Jobs dandled the hardcover novel sized device in his hands, looking very close to the 10 inch screen many had predicted.
The device is .5 inches thick with a 9.7 inch screen. It weighs only 1.5 lbs and holds 10 hours of battery life.
It will hold either 16, 32 or 64 gigabytes of flash storage. It is wireless and Bluetooth equipped.
On the all-important application side, the iPad can run apps from Apple’s store in one of two ways: You can see it at the original size in middle of the iPad and with black around it or the iPad can double the pixels to run it full screen.
